Tier 1 (in no order): G3,Wilson, Newton (love his game, total package, unwarranted hate IMO)
Tier 2: Kaep (small sample size right now, but another half season like he played last year and he joins the top guys)
Tier 3: Luck (better decision making, less turnovers, and if he shows up against a less cupcake schedule there is nothing not to like and he becomes on par with G3 and Wilson)
I think you rate Newton, keep and even RG3, too high. But you are not alone. If all parts were equal (SOS, surrounding cast, etc), I'd put Wilson at the top (not being a homer...seriously) and Luck would follow. After that? I don't think it will matter. Not long term.
The reason I have RW at the top is his head. The same (I believe) can be said for Luck. These two are clearly team first, ego second. I don't get that from the others. I'm not calling Kaep, Newton or Griffin selfish, in fact, the opposite may be true..BUT...I do see those guys more apt to take unnecessary risks on the football field, trying to make something out of nothing to wow their fans and FO. I predict all 3 will suffer the same fate as Vick. Yes, they are bigger and stronger but when you are getting slammed by guys out weighing them by 100 lbs, how much does that really matter? NFL= Not For Long and that's my unbiased prediction for Kaep, Newton and RG3. They will be their own worst enemies (aside from Shanahan, that is).
Having your views challenged is a lot more healthy than simply jabbering on with people who think exactly the same way as you.
